The much anticipated Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them came out today! And even though I’m not going to see it I thought I’d celebrate the release anyway. (Plus it’s my sixth month blogging anniversary!) I figured a good way to celebrate a movie about magical creatures would be to talk about the magical creatures whom I think are the most fantastic.
You can’t have a list of mythological creatures and not include dragons, I think most everyone can agree that there awesome. I can’t think of dragons without thinking of How to Train Your Dragon Toothless is adorable, and those movies are so good I can’t wait for the third one.
If you’re looking for a good book about dragons I highly recommend Seraphina by Rachel Hartman. I actually have a review if you care to read it but basically it’s good and creative.
Perhaps my favorite mythical creature sadly I haven’t read a amazing book about them. I adored fairys so much when I was little I even had a book about them I actually still have it I would tell my dad about the fairy world I’d created inside my head. I still think about the fairy story I made up I thought about writing it but I’m not a good writing, but maybe I will one day but it would be a lot more bloody then the story little me came up with it. Come to think of it The Book Fairy would have been a much cuter name then Codn Reviews Books.
I haven’t actually read any books about mermaids I know they exist but none of them really look good to me they all seem a bit cliche, maybe I’ll give one of them a chance do you know a good mermaid book? But I have seen them in a lot of movies and I clearly love them.
Pegasus by Robin McKinley is one of my favorite books, about a girl and her Pegasus who is bonded to her I love the world I think it was done so well. It made me love Pegasus I already liked them but now I like them more because the book is important to me plus there just cool and pretty.
I had to include Pukwudgie since that’s my Ilvermorny house I do identify more with my Hogwarts house Hufflpuff but I am American so technically I would go to Ilvermorny and be a Pukwudgie. I loved the story about the founding of Ilvermorny and William the Pukwudgie had a lot to do with it and Pukwudgie’s seem like their pretty great, I liked William at least.
I really want to learn about more kinds of mythical creatures while making this list I realized that while I love them I really don’t know of that many, maybe Fantastic Beats and Where to Find Them will broaden my knowledge of magical creatures. I mean I know about all the ones everyone knows of but I want to know about more ubscure creatures I love how the Ilvermorny houses are named after creatures I’d never hear of before.
What do you think the most fantastic magical creatures are? Do you agree with my list?
